RAGE VOLLEYBALL LEAGUE
- Arrive 15 minutes before the start of your
scheduled time to officiate.
- Get a clipboard, pen/pencil, whistle,
scoresheets, and a copy of the schedule.
- Fill out scoresheets with name of teams,
court number and start time.
Have these ready before your match begins.
- The schedule indicates the name of the
coach and the t-shirt color for each team. Since there are no team names
shown on the shirts, look for the right color of the teams involved and
the find the coach. Ask a player if necessary.
- Get both coaches and a team captain to
conduct the coin flip. If you have just finished refereeing a match,
immediately find the coaches and get this done for the next match. Be sure
to remind each coach that they need to provide a linejudge for each game.
- You can give the teams a FEW minutes to
warm up and perhaps a minute to serve but that is about it. We do not have
the luxury of letting teams warm up for 10 minutes. They should have shown
up earlier and warmed up upstairs or on an empty court. Suggest that they
show up early next week to do so.
- TAKE CHARGE and get the match started. You
may need to tell the coaches that we need to get going more than once.
BLOW YOUR WHISTLEˇLOUDLYˇto get the message across. Then, SMILE at them.
Find a ball to use and start the match.
- You will need to help coaches with
rotation, substitutions etc. We need to make sure the girls are learning
to play the right way. That means that ALL of the players should be
receiving the serve with a forearm pass.
- Please announce the score out loud,
frequently. You might consider when a team reaches 8, 12, and15 and then
maybe every two points or so, ending with ýgame pointţ.
- Please do NOT enforce the single ýtoss &
dropţ opportunity on the serve. In other words, if a player tosses the
ball to serve and then drops or catches it and then serves, then that is
fineˇeven if they follow this procedure three service attempts in a row.
- Please review with the coaches about where
players should stand to serve. Please ask the coaches to make sure they do
a good job in moving their players back as far as they can. Tell them that
we would like players to move back as far as they can in order to
- When filling out scoresheets, you only
need to keep score. Players names are not needed. Please mark properly who
wins each game.
- Please remember to come and referee with a
great attitudeˇan attitude that will allow you to have fun and encourage
girls to love the sport of volleyball and to WANT to get better.
Compliment them when they make a good play and give them a high-five.
Encourage them and praise them. If a coach is giving you a tough time,
please do not yell at them or look funny at them. Call them over and have
a brief one-on-one conversation. Be respectful at all times and if you
still have problems go over and get one of the coaches or parents to help
resolve the problem. If you set the right tone, hopefully the parents will
follow the example you set and we will have no unusual situations crop up.
- At the end of the day, return all
equipment to the storage box and give to your coach to store away for the
next practice or game. Please save scoresheets for Marc Blau.
